the obama administration strong sanctions have been put into place, and to date they have worked affecting the economy of iran. he said they've not stopped in deterring the nuclear program that that country is pursuing. he spent much of the speech setting the stage, talking about iranian aggression saying this is what we've seen in iran where they've turned on their own people without a nuclear weapon. what can the world expect if iran is able to obtain a nuclear weapon? an interesting note. he said in his remarks the middle east, europe and america would not be safe. >> yes. this presupposes that iran is not a rational actor or is sometimes described as death call. it's not clear. we've gone through this. i don't know if you were in the late 1990s and early 2000s we went through the same rhetoric with north korea. it it was unthinkable. the world would go through no effort and they couldn't trust them with a bomb, south korea could be destroyed although the touch the button. president clinton said north korea will never use that bomb, because if they do, it will be the end of north korea.
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
's replacement refs, yes, to the obama administration. >> i got to start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a break. i half think that these refs work part-time for the obama administration in the budget office. trying to pick the winners and losers and they don't even do that very well. unlike the seattle seahawks last night, we want to deserve this victory. >> vice president joe biden meanwhile has beenle holding mock debate sessions with chris van holland and campaigned yesterday in the state of virginia, keeping romney's comments about the 47% in his line of attack. >> he attacks the 47% of the american people who he says paid no federal taxes. and he attacks, he, romney, attacking someone on taxes? woah. that's like me attacking someone for being passionate in politics. >> also yesterday here in new york city, president obama addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic video that some say caused the unrest in the middle east, bu
of the obama administration -- >> i've never had a perfect candidate. i wasn't perfect. and i will always speak out. but if you read the article today and my other utterances, it has always been stated that i'm still on the obama train. and i will explain why if you would -- >> we will definitely like you to do that. but first with the question of the red wine that -- >> not so much the red wine. >> yeah, please -- tell us what you said last week. >> ok. i was incensed as i believe every american was at what occurred in both egypt and libya. and egypt, the embassy was overreturn, the cops, the egyptian cops ran away, didn't protect the embassy in libya. the military -- libyan military, libyan cops ran away, didn't protect the embassy and in addition, worst of all was the fact that the ambassador was murdered, killed so to speak. i'm not sure exactly how he was affix yated or how it actually occurred along with three other consulate personnel. and i did not believe that the american response was adequate. the egyptian -- strike that, the american embassy in egypt initially put out a statement wh
has reacted to this. but that is one of the wild cards here in this race that the obama administration and the president cannot control. gwen: except that, the upside, he's the guy with the job and hard to unseat an incumbent and the downside, he's the guy with the job? >> you saw romney try to come out early and he did make those comments seeming to suggest that obama was siding with the attackers and tried to pick this with the comment of bumps in the road. romney does seem to go from pillar to post in terms of picking on themes but doesn't necessarily carry them through and he hasn't been able to make a case that he could do a better job in handling problems in the middle east. i think most americans know it is incredibly complicated situation over there. and i don't think he has yet made a compelling argument that he could do a better job handling that. gwen: one of the things that is out of the president's control is congress and this fiscal cliff dilemma that we are about to face, by the end of the year, if they don't do something, there will be across-the-board budget cuts. has
slamming the obama administration for quote, not coming clean on murders of four americans in libya. karl rove on that. twin explosions targeting a syrian building. this is brand new video we have just gotten in. it is amateur video we're monitoring for you. these explosions in a busy square in central damascus. they set fire to a building there. conflicting reports over fatalities and anti-regime group is involved in this claiming responsibility saying dozens were killed in these attacks while the army says no one died. conflicting reports there. so diplomats living close to the area saying this is the biggest blast they have heard in months. bill: get ready for more headlines on this story in a matter of moments. iran's president ahmadinejad speaks at u.n. this morning. jonathan hunt standing by live on the east side of manhattan. what is expected today from him, jonathan? >> reporter: in one word, bill, fireworks. this is likely to be president ahmadinejad's last address to the u.n. general assembly as president of iran. his second term expires next june and it is unlikely that the ira
it know it and when and how was the obama administration informed. just in to cnn, the national intelligence director is addressing both issues. let's get right to cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly in washington. >> this has been something of a political football thrown around for a couple of weeks now as people try to nail down what happened, when intelligence officials knew it, and this is the fullest accounting yet we're getting now from the office of the director of national intelligence on exactly what they knew and when. i want to read to you from a statement by shawn turner, the director of public affairs for the odni's office. he said in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier thie day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who use that formation to discuss the attack publicly. now, the problem, of course, began when did people know that this was planned, when did they realize that this actually
-time for the obama administration in the budget office. >>> mitt romney had kind words for bill clinton yesterday, saying a few nice words from bill clinton can do a lot of good, he said. and he joked that he would wait for his clinton bounce in the polls. >>> and mr. romney's wife, ann, was on the "tonight show" with jay leno talking about his husband's plans for america's future and she explained to jay how she feels about mitt running for president. >> four years ago i made a videotape and on the videotape, i looked in the camera and he said, mitt, this is for you, sweetheart, i'm never doing this again. >> well, jay also asked ann romney if mitt is a good dancer. she replied he's gotten to be a better dancer. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> elsewhere, missouri republican congressman todd aiken let the deadline to let the senate race pass yesterday without dropping out. he's bound to stay despite pressure within his own party since his legit mate rape comments. last night on the last word with lawrence o'donnell, aiken's opponent claire mccaskill says that was clearly a
little gamble. >> there's no track. the obama administration tried very hard. >> what is it they don't want to us talk about? on the edge of this election of a new president, of a president, not a new president, of a president? >> i don't want they don't want to us talk about. i know what they want to alk ab >> to talk about it now? >> they want to us talk about iran, that's exactly right because that is the existential threat to israel. >> do you think in a second term obama will go along with the idea? >> with this idea here? >> yeah. >> let me put it this way. i'm willing to put a lot of >>> issue friend or foe? since the historic camp david accords, egypt has been treated as a u.s. ally and corner stone of our middle east diplomacy. president anwar sadat and hosni mubarak were frequent guests at the white house. in a recent interview with telemumdo, president obama said this regarding egypt, "i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy." in addition to the $1.3 billion annually in military aid, egypt recently received another $1 billion
the obama administration. >> in the book you write about the obama's administration handling of the withdrawal from iraq. the administration had a fresh chance to reengage with iraq's leaders and shape its politics. obama did not act decisively on that chance choosing ahead to take hands off approach on iraq. this decision was characteristic of those obama made on iraq. he saw america's involvement there not as an opportunity but rather as a leftover minefield, a path out of which had to be charted as quickly as possible. explain that to us. >> at the end of the bush administration, the beginning of the obama administration, violence was down substantially in iraq. the question was were we going to keep a small number of troops in iraq after 2011? how would that be negotiated? there was a significant difference, i think, in perspective between the pentagon where admiral mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, civilians, saw iraq as an opportunity. they wanted to keep a reasonably sized force around 16,000. at the white house, the national security adviser saw it more t
about that bill. that is something the obama administration has not embraced. that is a b bipartisan bill. john boehner is not a fan of that bill but mitt romney will have to tuck more about that to goes the gap in ohio. arthel: we'll be watching. it's an exciting race to say the least and weep it here on the fox news channel for all your details all the way up to november 6th and beyond. thank you, bob. jon: remembering andy williams, we'll look back at life and career of a singer who brought us some unforgettable music, hits like "moon river," "can't get used to losing you." as arthel just mentioned president obama and governor mitt romney both in the battleground state of ohio today. the president we're told is prepared to launch attacks against his opponent over china so, what is that all about? we'll get into it ahead. arthel: right now new information on crime stories we are keeping an eye out for you. a jamaican man accused of murdering a south carolina couple at their vacation home. the 28-year-old security tpard is charged with fatally stabbing michael and tell ma king at th
are missing in action almost as if the obama administration's doctor and has been abandonment rather than one of strength. stuart: your position -- you are in a tiny minority. we very rarely hear from practicing muslims the kind of the opinions you frequently express on this program. you have lost the debate. you have lost the numbers. you have no numbers on your side. >> we have no numbers when it comes the loudest voices and strongest forces of evil between the old soil in the middle east that was told by hosni mubarak and those like mahmoud ahmadinejad but lost in the din is the quiet minority bleaker still the majority that needs some power of america and the west to defend them and stand by them from the grassroots up but they are not getting any attention. they are not having riots and they had demonstrations in libya at the washington post and yet we have been ignoring them because the president doesn't want to make a case for liberty. the president wants to stay away from meeting with leaders of the free world and seeing we're not only behind them but want to lead from the front for t
crystal actually found himself complimenting the obama administrations' record while advising the romney campaign to focus on the next four years instead of the last four years. >> if this election is just about the last four years, it's a muddy verdict. bush was president during the financial melt down, the obama team has turned that around pretty well. >> and david brooks thinks he knows a moderate republican when he sees one. and that mitt romney is faking it when he tries to sell right wing extremism. >> mitt romney does not have the passion for the stuff he's talking about. he's a problem sofr. i think he's a nonideological person. and he's faking it. >> rush limbaugh who pretty much hates everything that david brooks has to say, reacted this way to david brooks on his radio show today. >> ideological age that romney can't do it? isn't that why you told us he would be the best nominee? am i wrong -- am i missing something here? isn't that why brooks and others told us we had to nominate romney precisely because he wasn't ideological and that would be necessary to get the independenc
battery. >>> recently the obama administration made public release of prisoners from guantanamo bay. time served at gitmo is becoming a badge of honor and for many it has been a training ground for waging more terror against america. katherine herridge is in washington with more. >> heather and patti ann about 1 in 3 detainees return to the battlefield if they are released. many have senior positions within al qaeda or one of the affiliates. >> the libyan identified his guantanamo by determined number 557 is the leading suspect in the benghazi consulate. time at gitmo can be like a badge of honor giving them street cred even rock star status. there'sal shir ry who spent nearly 6 years in guantanamo. he is the deputy leader of al qaeda in yemen. they dee down-play the guantanamo effect. >> given higher status in some terrorist groups but probably not in the best position to accurately characterize that. i think it's probably safe to say some of them do acquire some degree of status but i am not sure it's widespread. >> the evidence points to a joint operation between the group and the al q
. virtually the eastern two-thirds of the state has natural gas. the obama administration is trying to use the epa to cripple the development of this energy. governor romney favors senator hoeven's plan. there's an easy place to get john kasich in as his ally explaining why ohio should control its own destiny and why ohians should retake the lead in manufacturing worldwide. >> mr. speaker, i can sense a little frustration perhaps in your voice. if you had the opportunity to give some advice to mitt romney about this upcoming debate just a week from now, what would that advice be given the fact that you've debated him yourself? >> look, i actually just wrote a newsletter for gingrich productions and outlining my thoughts about presidential debates because i've watched them since the first ones with nixon and kennedy. the first ground is be who you are. you're not going to change somebody at his age who's done things very successfully. don't take advice from consultants who want you to somehow imaginely be non-mitt. my second advice is walk in determined to draw very sharp, clear lines with
in the light of the reaction of the u.s. catholic of bishops to the obama administration rules and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically this is the elephant in the room catholics disagree with teaching and contraception. >> i'm one of those catholics. [laughter] >> in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved, and they have their freedom, too. their religious freedom and peace catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here the attention of the two different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first said that peace church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their employees. not only the u.s. catholic bishops but many other catholics and many other proponents of the religious liberty oppose the obama administration regulations but to its great credit the obama administration then proposed a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but
and the barack obama administration from the beginning has been focusing on veterans. michelle obama -- >> she's always with the families. >> this is a theme that runs through the administration. it's paying off now in many states. >> and romney did them the favor of not mentioning -- >> of not mentioning. in senate races it will be big. that's a constituency surprisingly in favor of this president which in the past has not been the case with democratic presidents. >> this rings with that great movie by oliver stone, they cheer when you go off to battle, when you come back wounded you're not really one of them anymore. it's terrible. >> it's been smart and humane of the obamas to focus on it. >> thank you, howard fineman, great conversation howard and joy. >> claire mccaskill versus todd akin. two months ago missouri was a good bet for republicans. let's see how it's looking now. claire mccaskikacaskill joins u. >>> with four judges from the supreme court in their 70s, the next president could dramatically shift of the balance of the court to the right or to the left. who do you want picking t
in the polls but recent questions about his administration's handling of the terrorist attack in libya have potentially left president obama vulnerable on one of his core strengths, foreign policy and given mitt romney a new opening. the administration is in the hot seat for initially suggesting that the attack on the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi which killed ambassador stevens and three other americans grew out of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-muslim video. the white house later reversed course and said it was a premeditated terrorist attack. david plouffe tried to clear up its inconsistency yesterday on "meet the press." >> information was being provided real time. obviously you're going to know more two weeks after an event and a week after an event and as ambassador rice -- that was the information from the intelligence community, provided for congress. the reason, obviously, we now have stipulated this is a terrorist attack is that came from the intelligence agencies. >> plouffe's comments after the director of national sbem generals released a mea culpa two days e
cases against china in one term than the previous administration did in two. and, by the way, we've been winning those cases. >> president obama spot on. his record on china is very clear. the obama administration as filed, couldn't them, eight cases against china over unfair trade practices, including one last week accusing china of providing illegal subsidies to its parts industry. in 2009 president obama imposed a tax on chinese tires putting 1,000 workers, americans, back to work. it's a move mitt romney opposed at the time. and today president obama blocked a chinese company from building wind farms near an oregon naval base. the white house cited national security risks and ordered all equipment removed within two weeks. for more on this, let's turn to california congressman john garamendi. john, great to have you with us tonight. >> always good. >> you bet. everyone knows affiliates of bain outsourced jobs to china when romney was there. what do you make of romney attacking the president for being weak, allegedly weak on china. is this his defense mechanism knowing he's got a terr
saying the president has thrown israel under the bus recently saying the obama administration has a, quote, chronic disregard for the security of israel, so now in the same day that the president will be having this phone call with benjamin netanyahu, mitt romney's campaign saying he, too, will be speaking with him by phone. this is a chance for mitt romney to again show that he is a friend to israel and that he is committed to making sure that iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon. >> okay. dan lothian at the white house. thanks very much, live for us this morning. it merits repeating that they have had a strained relationship almost from day one. here with me to talk about the diplomatic implications, foreign affairs reporter elise levitt. you have been watching this all week and seen all the accusations. is what dan just reported on enough to smooth the ruffled feathers? is this over? >> these guys don't love each other. they don't love the different styles and i think both of them wanted to provoke each other a little bit. the reason they never mitt, prime minister netanyahu sa
for israel in particular, we had to make a statement today, the obama administration did make a statement, we're not going to listen to him anymore. >> do you think that the administration made a mistake in having the president really not in action here? this is the first time, really unprecedented for him to have no bilateral meetings not with just our closest aallies, but morsi is here, this is a pivotal moment with egypt, he spoke to the united nations, all these meetings held by hillary clinton and not by the president of the united states. jon stewart interviewing king abdullah of jordan last night and posing that question. >> you were at the u.n. today. does anyone -- is there any discussion amongst world leaders about the american president not being available for face-to-face meetings? is that upsetting? >> not that i heard. everybody is there preparing for their speeches and side meetings with other leaders. that went an issue. >> we are, in fact, perhaps in some respects blowing this out of proportion is this. >> most likely probably. >> the king being diplomatic and polite. what ab

more rigorous immigration. that is the reason why the obama administration embraced it. it is all about how are these things are presented and what are you obligated to say when you are pinned down? do you believe in enforcing these laws that seem problematic or not? the idea of the tree back, is that well, these are the good kids -- the idea of the dream act, is these are the good kids. it does not mean you are a bad kid if you have a criminal record. it does not make you a bad person. there is something very disingenuous about the debate we have are rounded. that is because advocates want to structure the debate and a certain way. i do not believe this is rooted in believes that our prior to the way we structure the conversation. i think advocates have structured the conversation is very advantageous the, which is their job. >> thank you. >> a couple more questions. then we are going to have to cut it off. maybe back there. and also to your right. >> hi. i was wondering if you could address the millennials, looking forward in terms of democratic party strength. >> and also the gentlem
what happened the first two years of the obama administration, and democrats should have been able to do anything they wanted to do, and now is when that should pay off. we shouldn't be worried about what happened last month and how that impacts the economy because, frankly, we've had no budget, no appropriations bills. the majority in the senate, i think, will change because people are tired of a senate that won't do the things that need to be done. >> let me ask you about the state of the race in missouri. this is where you had congressman akin who made a ve controversial remark, which you condemn, which others condemn. you, in fact, said at the time we do not believe it sefshz the national interest for congressman todd akin to stay in the race for senate. the issues at stake are too big, and it's simply too important. the right decision is to step aside. as we all know todd akin did not step aside. he is running as the republican. you are looking as though -- the republicans are looking as though they're going to lose that race because akin stayed in it. >> i think at the end of
as the obama administration. instead he yoked himself to ryan who is the architect of a radical and fprofane agenda in the house. he's tied to washington in an unpu unpopular agenda. >> during an interview after collecting paul ryan, governor romney said he's running on his budget and not congressman ryan's. let me play that. >> i have my budget plan, as you know, that i put out. that's the budget plan we're going to run on. >> you heard mitt romney there, so is it fair to assume he will follow paul ryan's blueprint? >> his senior adviser ed gillespie said if his budget reached his desk, he would have signed it. reverend norquist said the real leadership in the republican party is not located the in the oval office but in congress, and what republicans really need is sort of a human equivalent of up an auto pen. somebody with enough fingers to sign legislation. if you look at this legislation, it's not just a return to the days of george w. bush. on everything from environmental regulations to abortion to gun rights, it's worse than bush. so some of his centrist supporters they make this arg
government grew during the bush and administration and during the obama administration 1.7%. i agree it is too big bet you put it in the wrong era. we both know of entrepreneurs who have been very successful but but who built the road who built the highways and it is basic six common-sense people understand people come into the state with no government at all. then don't drive on the highway. businesses need the educated work force granted, it is public-private partnership
of any news that reflects badly on the obama administration. wabc radio in new york, for example, reported on the slightly better job report for this week, but made no mention of the poor g.d.p. and durable goods numbers yesterday. and we will talk about those issues with maria bartiromo of cnbc when she comes out and joins us in about 15, 20 minutes. d.w. emails in, the candidates are the result of the media. the media does not reflect the report on them, it creates them. when a candidate complains about the media, it's like a mind where the ego complains about the sub-conscious, pure illusion. becky says of course the mainstream media is biased. it will take a blithering idiot not to notice that. fox news is the only fair and balanced medium on the air. they always have opposing sides to their stories. sondra is a republican in empire, alabama. sondra, what do you think about media coverage of the campaign so far? caller: i think it's very biased, especially on msnbc and nbc. i don't even watch them anymore. also, i've noticed that c-span, not on the coverage of the parties, bu
, the administration of george w. bush, and also president obama's cairo speech, major u.s. officials have acknowledged -- condi rice as a secretary of state gave it a promise beach that the nine states had supported authoritarian regimes and it ultimately would be on the wrong side of history and time for a breath of fresh air and the democratic revolution to move to the muslim world. president obama's speech in cairo early in his presidency attempted to do the same thing and breed some sense of liberalism into the muslim world. the difficulty, as you point out, is memories are long and people remember that for a long time in the interest of stability during the cold war, the authoritarian dictator maybe an sob but he is our s.o.b. -- and even after the cold war when it came to some arab regimes, we were willing to purchase strongmen who would at least have a reasonable relationship with israel. we can't be surprised, as you point out, that when these democratic openings occur, some of the people owe were most mobilize are those who worked in a sense outlawed as political parties, and in many cases th
